My '69 Camaro Refresh

Click to see a large version of the image


There are 692 pictures in this gallery

I started this refresh because a friend of mine (Dave Montoya) broke the cam in half while just letting it "idle". I decided to rebuild the engine, but that turned into rewiring, new interior, paint, and everthing else.... It is getting closer to completion. I got the new paint scheme on it. I fabricated the tranny crossmember with integrated safety loop. Now all that's left is some wiring, interior and some other little stuff.

[Story]
I bought this car in 1998 while working in San Francisco. I changed the 350 to a 377 not long after I got it. I started to replace some of the worn out pieces on it just to make it a little safer to drive. I was staying in a hotel for a while and had the car stored at Dave Montoya's house. He was out driving it one day and while it was "just idling" it stopped running. After tearing down the engine to see what was wrong I found out that the cam had broke in half. I decided to redo the 377. Then I decided to redo the 30+ year old wiring. Then I decided to redo the dry rotted interior. Since I was going this far I decided to have the shell of the car media blasted and repainted. I bought the Alston front subframe because the stock subframe had been hurt pretty badly by a previous owner, so much so that I had to use a come-a-long to pull the frame together to be able to bolt the crossmember in it before. After 5 years of being apart it is back on the road. Still have some plans for mini-tubbing and rear suspension upgrades that need to be completed.
